Copenhagen - Post Report Question and Answers

Is it easy to make friends with locals here? Are there any prejudices or any ethnic groups who might feel uncomfortable here?

I haven't seen any prejudice but many Danes are anti-immigration. It is difficult to make friends with locals but there are many expats in the city. - Feb 2022

Not really. Danes are pretty homogenous and have normally grown up with all their friends. It's hard if not impossible to break into that inner circle unless you're coming here to marry a Dane. They are often regarded as cold but I would describe them as blunt. They will tell you to your face, "why would I make friends with you when you're just going to leave in X years". If you're middle eastern or look it, I wouldn't come here. - Jun 2021
